The Audubon society in our state maintains several hiking trails that are within driving distance from us.
We have been taking advantage of these nature trails this summer before we strike out on unmarked hikes later this fall.
Along with the danger of mosquitoes and poison ivy, we keep our eyes open for falling tree limbs and the occasional quicksand areas around the water.
On one hike we came upon a broken glass bottle that was partially hidden in the leaves on the forest floor.
This carelessness of another reminds me that some of the danger in this world comes from our fellow man, whether meaning to or not, and one needs to keep aware of all.
